You say nothing happened, but then you say the wallet picture appeared. So which is it?  Did the wallet picture appear and then disappear after a few minutes, or what?

Maybe try launching bitcoin-qt from the command line so you can see some console output and then paste that here.

Try deleting ~/.bitcoin (make sure you backup your wallet in ~/.bitcoin/wallet.dat if you've used it!) and then reopen bitcoin-qt.  I had that message when the blockchain download got interrupted on an old install.

What version does the ppa install? .6 has some speed improvements for the initial blockchain download.

unable rmdir ~/.bitcoin but rm * and rmdir all inside and now works ! THANKS !
You could have done 'rm -r ~/.bitcoin'  I don't think I've ever even used 'rmdir'
